Renew apache web certificate

Hi,
I got an OES1SP2 server and it's web certificates are soon gonna get expired.
Can I simply go into yast->ca management and delete the expired certificate and create a new? Do I need to make any backups first?

Re: Renew apache web certificate

Well, the main question is whether during the installation, you enabled
the option to use eDirectory certificates for apache. If that is the case,
you simply use the repair default certificates option in iManager under
the certificate server task. Upon the next restart, the server should then
use the renewed certificate.
If however you did not choose the option to use eDirectory certificates,
then you indeed have to use the certificate options in yast.

Looks like I did not use the eDirectory certificates for apache. So I can simply go into yast-ca-management->Enter the CA->Delete the old certificate and create a new. Then restart Apache.

Do I need to make any backups of existing certificates before doing this?

Re: Renew apache web certificate

I'm sorry, but I never used the Yast CA management tool. As such, I can't
tell you what would be the best way to proceed.
